Makers’ Name

Tim Smith


With clear points of inspiration coming from nature and heavy influences from iconic designs of the last century, the 14-12 Chair is certainly the most complex creation to come from the Waters and Acland workshop to date.


714 laminations of ash veneer. Compound curved seat and back upholstered in soft leather. No visible fixing points. The front leg and back rail component is a continuous lamination of 3.5 meters in length that took four makers working together to assemble.


Designed by Will Acland and created by the exceptionally talented Tim Smith we are all very proud at W&A to have this coming from our workshops.
